The Toast Rack, Fallowfield, Greater Manchester

What was the Hollings campus of Manchester Metropolitan University, better known as the Toast Rack. It was designed by Leonard Cecil Howitt, building was completed in the 1960s, and Pevsner described it as 'a perfect piece of pop architecture'. It is a Grade II listed building. The building at the side, with its hallmark circular structure barely visible here, is popularly known as the 'Fried Egg'.
